Public expo of Holy Shroud a fabrication, says Archbishop of Turin

.- The Archbishop of Turin, Cardinal Severino Poletto, has denied reports in the press about a supposed public exposition of the Holy Shroud to take place at the end of the decade.

“This is news invented by the press,” the cardinal told reporters, referring to a story in the Turin daily “La Stampa” which said the expo would take place in 2009, and a story in “La Repubblica” which said it would be held in 2010.

Cardinal Poletto also denied reports that a date for the expo would be decided after the consistory of cardinals held in Rome this past weekend.

The last time the Shroud was publicly displayed was in the year 2000, as part of the Jubilee Year.
